Silver Lake is an oxbow lake along the right Danube bank near the town of Veliko Gradište. It is a popular tourist resort.
The lake has an arch shape, it is 14 kilometers long, up to 300 meters wide and covers an area of 4 km². The water is clear due to the lack of pollution and the natural filtration of the water through many sand dunes. The lake is abundant in fish, including white amur, carp, catfish, pike, perch and other freshwater whitefish.
Fishing poles and kayak paddles are waiting for you. In addition, the Danubia Park Hotel operates a large waterpark right next to the playing hall!
There are many other tourist attractions in the region, including the medieval fortresses Ram and Golubac, the major Roman site Viminacium, the 8000-year-old Mesolithic settlement of Lepenski Vir (all on Danube bank) and the stunning 134-km long Iron Gates gorge.
You will be surprised to learn that the first recorded mention of “vampire” case (1725) occurred in the village Kisilevo, which is right next to the Silver Lake resort! But do not be afraid, the guests will be supplied with garlic wreaths at request.
